Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College

Details

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College grew out of and expanded on the mission of the esteemed Broadmoor Art Academy, established in 1919, to become one of the only multi-discipline arts institutions in the nation.

Today we remain an amazing rarity — a museum, theatre and art school, essentially an entire arts district, under one roof. And we go well beyond what you’d consider the boundaries of those disciplines, offering special performances in our galleries, stand-up comedy and concerts in our theaters, epic parties in our Smith Family Gallery, and insider perks for our members that take them inside the process of creating the arts.

The workshop will be an open-ended experiment in the public, collaborative nature of letterpress printing. According to Amos, this show will be: “A lot of sheets of paper with ink on them. These sheets of paper are evidence of the process of making unintentional marks intentional.” The workshop and exhibition at the FAC are part of a year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of The Press at Colorado College.</span></p> 30 W.

Drawings by Bernard Arnest <p>Bernard Arnest was a pupil of Boardman Robinson and Henry Varnum Poor, received the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1940, and had his first solo show at the San Francisco Museum of Art. During WWII, he served as Chief War Artist for the U.S. Army Historical section in the European theater. Following the war, he worked in New York City exhibiting at the Whitney Annual of American Painting, the Pittsburgh International, Corcoran Biennial then and subsequently, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. In 1947, he became chief instructor at the Minneapolis School of Art and prior to coming to Colorado Springs in 1957, he was Associate Professor of Art at the University of Minnesota. After his arrival in Colorado, Arnest served as both the head of the FAC Art School (which became the Colorado College Art Department) and Professor of Art at Colorado College.</p> <p>The most ambitious project of his career, <em>Scenes from Life</em>, is a series of 51 large drawings that encapsulated his reactions to a world that he has decided was essentially tragic. The subject matter can be challenging, depicting human strife and conflict, but the images are beautifully rendered. <em>Scenes from Life</em> is Bernard Arnest’s “Goldberg Variations,” distilling a lifetime of experience into a few harrowing images that are regrettably as relevant today as they were in 1975. This series, presented in its entirety, is a 2017 gift from the widow and children of the artist.</p> 30 W. Dale St. Colorado Springs, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler <p>Although widely known for her iconic “soak-stain” canvases, Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) was an equally inventive printmaker who took risks in a medium not frequently explored by abstract expressionists. Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler highlights the artist’s often-overlooked, yet highly original, whimsical, and powerfully evocative print production. Drawn from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, this exhibition includes more than 25 prints made using a diverse range of techniques, including lithography, etching, screen printing, and woodcut. The artist’s adaptation of her painterly aesthetic for the graphic medium offers a stunning look at how printmaking &#8211; notorious for being a slow, methodical process &#8211; can exude a sense of spontaneity and immediacy. From splattered pigments to translucent layers of ink, the radiant prints brought together her pulse with creative energy.</p> <p>This exhibition was organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, which through a generous grant also made possible the associated publication.</p> 30 W.

Nora Naranjo Morse <p>Throughout her career, Nora Naranjo Morse’s artworks have addressed the commodification of indigenous culture. In her new project, <em>Remembering</em>, she appropriates the billboards in the Southwest to disrupt commercial advertising. Her billboards promote the protection of the sacredness of life. This exhibition will present her billboard project and recent sculpture.</p> <p>Nora Naranjo Morse selected this site to engage the public’s awareness of Tava mountain (aka Pikes Peak), a sacred space for the Ute people, and the industrialized space of the Martin Drake Power Station on I-25. The power station exists on traditional tribal lands of the Ute people — a fact so many travelers along I-25 are unaware of. The message of the billboard is accompanied by an image Native people will recognize as cultural in nature. This message is for them as well. <em>Remembering </em>acknowledges and reaffirms the values crucial to our survival as indigenous people — Land. Culture. Community. Family</p> 30 W.

O Beautiful! Shifting Landscapes of the Pikes Peak Region <p>Decades before Katharine Lee Bates penned the famous words of her poem <em>Pikes Peak</em> in 1893, artists working in the European academic traditions were depicting the sublime grandeur of the Pikes Peak region. Colonizers of the Ute, Arapaho, Cheyenne, and other native lands sent tales of the rugged, dramatic scenery of the West back East, compelling artists such as Harvey Otis Young and Hamilton Hamilton to explore as well. The natural landscape of spacious skies, amber waves of grain, and purple mountains majesty of which Bates wrote, and would later become the famous anthem <em>America the Beautiful</em>, provided ample inspiration to late 19<span>th</span> and early 20<span>th</span> century painters.</p> <p>By the early 20<span>th</span> century, Colorado Springs was a popular tourist destination and a celebrated place for healing. Known as “Little London” largely due to significant British financial backing, this nickname also represents a desire for the city to create a cultural landscape mimicking established cosmopolitan cities. The Broadmoor Art Academy was born in 1919 from these expressed ideals and soon attracted students from across the country to immerse themselves in the landscape.</p> <p>The Broadmoor Art Academy shifted in name and facility to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center in 1936, but the ongoing commitment to art education remained a pillar of the institution. The subsequent years were unprecedented in terms of artistic production. Informed by modernism and abstraction, creatives such as Mary Chenoweth and Robert Motherwell challenged traditional expectations by producing works that were on the leading edge of the contemporary American art scene.</p> <p>A century after the founding of the Broadmoor Art Academy, we celebrate the ingenuity of the artists and patrons who helped to shape the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College into the fine museum, performing arts theatre, and art school it is today. Through these works, created by exceptional visual artists over the course of 100 years, we can witness the dramatic shifts that have occurred in the physical and artistic landscapes of the Pikes Peak region. As Colorado Springs continues to grow, so does the importance of a strong cultural identity. We are proud to have been an early and ongoing participant in this endeavor and strive to embrace the many avenues toward a doubly inclusive and dynamic FAC for all.</p> 30 W.

World of WearableArt <p>2018 marks the 30<span>th</span> anniversary of the <em>World of WearableArt ™ </em>(known as <em>WOW</em>), New Zealand’s largest arts show. <em>WOW </em>is an international design competition that attracts hundreds of entries, with an annual awards show that presents the finalist garments in a theatrical extravaganza that collides at the intersection of fashion and art. The rules of the competition encourage anything that is in any way wearable, as long as it is original, beautifully designed, and well-made, resulting in garments that are constructed from an extraordinary array of traditional and unconventional materials. The challenge: take art off the wall and adorn onto the human form.</p> <p>The 32 award-winning garments presented in this exhibition represent some of the most original, provocative, and unorthodox objects in the <em>WOW</em> Museum collection, demonstrating what designers from a wide variety of occupations can imagine when they are released from the constraints of “fashion” and are encouraged to see the human body as a blank canvas.</p> 30 W.

FAC Museum Free Day <p>The goal of Museum Free Days is to provide access to the FAC’s general admission offerings to the widest possible audiences in the Pikes Peak region. Museum Free Days, as a part of the FAC’s other free and reduced-fee programs (such as scholarship programs at Bemis, and special military discounts through the Blue Star Theatres and Blue Star Museums programs), make an important impact in our community.</p> <p>We believe that a strong arts and culture presence is essential for a healthy community. GE Johnson Construction Company, the Pikes Peak Community Foundation and the Kirkpatrick Family Fund have come alongside the Fine Arts Center to underwrite monthly free days at the museum. Museum Free Days require underwriting to pay for the costs of running the museum. Since the Fine Arts Center receives virtually no government funding, it is not able to offer free admissions without generous underwriting and support.</p> <p>“We’re thrilled to be able to partner with the Fine Arts Center,” says GE Johnson Construction Company CEO, Jim Johnson. “We recognize that increasing participation in the arts is good for the community and actually fuels the economic growth we need in the Pikes Peak region.”</p> 30 W.
